Lance, Sergio and stuff did everything to make our trip perfect. We are a choir of 21 women. 16 of us stayed at the Casa cool beans. The room, the breakfast...everything was fine.
They gave us all information we needed...Thanks for all.

Good and safe place to stay in Rio.

This will most likely be the easiest review I ever make on this site....!

Casa Cool Beans is a fabulous hotel in a wonderful city. We rounded off our 17 day Brazil trip with a return to Rio staying here in Santa Teresa. We were hoping we hadn't made a mistake by staying longer in Ipanema but we had! We left kicking ourselves a bit for not staying here longer as we had such a fantastic time. Still, we know where to stay next time around.

After friends had stayed here we chose the hotel without knowing much about the area. We weren't disappointed, Santa Teresa was fantastic, full of beautiful restaurants and bars and our new favourite hotel, Casa Cool Beans.

Lance was brilliant. We felt so at home here and he was always there to provide guidance, tips and knowledge on the areas history, things to do and places to go. Our room was spotlessly clean and comfortable. Everything worked perfectly. The pool area was delightful, the breakfast the best! Lovely fruits and rolls, typical ham and cheese but the selection at Casa Cool Beans shamed some of the other wonderful places we had stayed at. We were able to have an omelette which was delicious too!

There were no hiccups whatsoever. Lance - thanks for everything, especially for telling our taxi driver to put his foot down taking us to the airport because we got our flight time wrong! We got there in time thankfully!

Look forward to staying again in the (hopefully!) not too distant future.

Room Tip: Room 9 was amazing, if you don't mind a few more stairs.

Lance and his staff were the perfect hosts during our stay in Rio! He took care of us on our girls trip ensuring our safety before we departed each morning making sure we had a "plan" before embarking on our day. The staff were just as helpful and friendly tending to our every request...The breakfast omelettes with the freshly picked herbs were awesome and a really nice touch to a cool place to stay while visiting Rio! Would definitely recommend this place to family and friends and will return in the near future for Carnival or the Olympics! If there's availability lol!

We had a great stay! The place is lovely. We stayed only 4 nights in the beautiful room number 9. We were welcomed by Lance and Sergio that showed us the room and were available from that moment to every question, need and help that we needed. Lance and Sergio have a passion for service and they remember every morning to check at breakfast on us, and the rest of the guests, to ensure that everything is prepared for the day. They even remember our whishes from the day before and were ready to make all the efforts to make our dreams come true. The breakfast was delicious. The atmosphere at breakfast and during the day in the B&B was great. The neighborhood is lovely and it is very easy to get anywhere. You can also find nice places to eat and drink in a few minutes' walk. We had Marco picking us up from the airport and took him for a half day trip to Parque Nacional da Tijuca.

Room Tip: If you don't have problem with stairs take the top room. It is smaller but great. Our friends to...

My partner and I spent 5 nights at Casa Cool Beans during our stay in Rio. It is located up on the hill of Santa Teresa, a beautiful setting of narrow winding cobbled streets and stunning architecture. We were warmly welcomed by Lance and shown to a lovely, bright and spacious room. We were also given a guide book and map of Rio and told that we could bring these to breakfast each morning in case we required advice about planning our days out in Rio. This proved to be a very valuable service. Lance and Sergio are very knowledgeable and passionate about the city and made fantastic suggestions for a day out taking into consideration the weather forecasts. I feel that we were able to make maximum use of our time in the city as they provided information on transportation, places to eat out etc and thereby we had a daily plan...and all of this was organised whilst we sat and feasted on a delicious breakfast buffet of fresh breads, fruits, cheeses, meats and cake!!

What more can i add? A very comfortable bed, very clean room, lovely toiletries, fantastic staff and the ideal location. I would also recommend a night out in Santa Teresa, particularly of a weekend. We had intended on going down to Lapa to experience a real night out in Rio but never made it down because we were charmed by all the little bars and restaurants in the area.

Casa Cool Beans, we will be back.

Really the other reviewers have said it all.

Lance, Sergio and David have this place working with the charming efficiency and a quality of service that is unmatched. From the moment I was picked up by Sergio at the airport to when the taxi came for my return everything was first class. You really have to experience it to believe it! Lance has a passion for service and that shows every morning when he checks on his guests at breakfast to ensure that everything is prepared for their day. No question goes unanswered and he goes to incredible lengths to ensure your complete satisfaction.

If you are looking for a B&B in Rio search no further!

Room Tip: Room 7 and Room 9 both have great views

We had a really great stay. Lance, Sergio and the rest of the team couldn't have been more helpful and made a point of helping plan our day every morning over a sumptuous breakfast.

We stayed in room 9 which has nice views out over Santa Teresa at it wraps itself around the hill.

Don't really have much to add to the many positive comments elsewhere. If you don't mind a 20 minute walk you can explore the rest of Rio from the Metro, which is really straightforward. The walk back up the hill is a bit more of a trial after a day out and about.
